Short Course: 2020 Bayesian Modeling for Socio-Environmental Data

 

Short Course: Interactive Web-Based Visualizations and Decision Support Tools in Shiny/R for Quantitative Scientists

Solutions to pressing environmental problems require understanding connections between human and natural systems. Analysis of these systems requires a model that can deal with complexity, is able to exploit data from multiple sources, and is honest about the uncertainty from multiple sources. Synthesis of results from multiple studies is often required.
